Lucas on Reds No.10

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

GOLD COAST - Stand-in flyhalf Ben Lucas is licking his lips at the prospect of an extended run in Queensland's No.10 jersey.

So often the Reds' backline Mr Fix-it, Lucas has the opportunity to play out the remainder of the campaign at five-eighth following the season-ending shoulder injury to Quade Cooper.

Lucas spent most of his junior days playing five-eighth before becoming a utility option for the Reds.

He took over from Cooper following his injury in the controversial 30-27 loss.

"I've played it my whole life, so anytime I do have to go back to 10 things come pretty naturally," Lucas said.

His selection means "subtle" changes for the Reds style of play but confident he's got the ability to deliver in Cooper's absence.
